Maybe he thought it was a drive through penalty?

Teams from USA, Japan planning on 2016 'NASCAR' race on the moon

http://www.foxsports.com/motor/story/us ... 016-022415

Two competitors in the Google Lunar XPrize competition have teamed up and hope to stage the first car race in outer space.
The United States’ Astrobotics and Japan’s Hakuta teams announced on Monday that they plan to send their robot rovers to the moon on the same trip next year via commercial space flight company SpaceX. Astrobotics has developed a lander called the Griffin that will deliver the pair to the surface where they will compete for a portion of the $20 million grand prize.
To win, the solar-powered off-roaders will have to travel at least 500 meters while streaming HD video back to earth. Astrobotics CEO John Thornton said in a press release that they envision a “'NASCAR on the Moon' scenario, where competing teams land together, and countries can cheer on their team to the finish line.”
Other teams in the competition have been invited to join their rocket pool and share the prize with the winner, but none has yet announced if they’ll take them up on the offer.
Final flight plan confirmations must be filed by Dec. 31 of this year for the contest to move forward, and the mission must be completed by the end of 2016.

So Alonso is still in hospital. Beginning to think there is something serious going on.

Don't they keep them in for a few days anyway? Mainly due to the concussion medication?

There's a chance it might still be fairly routine. But yeah, in previous similar occurrences drivers have been released a lot quicker than this.

Mosley sold the global TV rights to Ecclestone $100m for 100 years I think it was. An astronomical undervaluing. I'm amazed that has never attracted legal attention to be honest.

So the running order, following testing, seems to be:

Merc>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Williams>Ferrari>Red Bull>>>>>McLaren/Lotus>Force India>Sauber/Toro Rosso

I reckon Sauber might have a quick car in qualy, but maybe I'm reading too much into the times. I also reckon Red Bull will have a few tricks up their sleeves and will develop quickly. I think it's unanimously agreed that the Renault engine is clearly the worst now, though, whereas Ferrari have made good gains in that area.

I think McLaren is too high up your list, by the way their reliability is I'd be shocked if they finish in Melbourne.

Yeah, true. Their car looks too ambitious. Reminds me of the Red Bull from last winter. I bet they'll be the most unreliable team this season, by a long way.

My insider at Red Bull said they aren't worried about Ferrari at all and don't see them as a threat this year. I'll be interested to see how correct he is....

Yes?

Very strange. I don't recall many similar incidents to this, low speed crash causing a serious concussion. Unless F1 is making serious efforts these days to prevent any issues with recurring concussion that the NFL is struggling with.

What do you call "low speed"? I read it was at about 150mph.

Yes?

Yeah, and the head jolting in the wrong way or at a slightly funny angle can make a huge difference - more than the actual speed itself.
